Black's Book of Scottish Surnames" considers the surname "Waddell" (and spelling variants) to have originated in Scotland. This seems supported by date references in English and Irish surname directories that date listings after the 1200's when the name had already been established in Scotland. No clan affiliation, (other than from normal inter-marriage), is known. The name derivation appears to be "locational".
